I got a slot car set for Christmas when I was about eight years old. I ran the cars until the contact pads wore out, then I pretty much gave up on them.
But Simon Jansen is just getting into the action, and he’s doing it at a time when compact and cheap electronics afford (potentially) more interactivity. See, Jansen taped his cellie on one of his cars and started recording the action with the built-in camera.
The video is worth a look. About adults with toys, Jansen says this:
and to all those who think it is childish for a grown man to be buying a toy like this all I have to say to you is NAAA, NAA, NAAA, NAAAA, NAAAAARRR!!!! :p
